A potentiometric technique based on surfactant ion selective electrode has been used for various cationic and anionic surfactants. The data obtained contain m 1 (surfactant monomer concentration); m 2 (free counterion concentration) and (degree of dissociation of micelle) were used for determination of aggregation number at and above cmc (critical micelle concentration). Data fitting show a relationship between aggregation number with such parameters. The correlation equation obtained shows
